24.12.2015 17:34

Russian Natural Resource Minister Sergei Donskoi said that the review of Russian request to extend its continental shelf in the Arctic is planned for February 2016 in the UN.

A UN commission will review Russia's request to extend its continental shelf in the Arctic in February 2016, Russian Natural Resource Minister Sergei Donskoi said Thursday.

"The review is planned for February 2016 in the UN. I plan to personally attend the presentation of the request. I hope that we'll be able to complete all of the necessary actions so that the request is approved," Donskoi told journalists.

In August, Russia initiated a request to the UN on extending the borders of its continental shelf in the Arctic after showing that the Lomonosov Ridge and other geological regions was an extension of its maritime borders.
